We recently decided as part of the re-decoration of our living room, to commission a piece of art from Worcester-based artist Sharon McSwiney. She creates wonderful decorative metalwork installations and jewellery, and we first caught sight of her work at a Saturday Cheltenham Craft Market.On the way back from Iona we stopped in and picked up the finished artwork, having paused to take a pic of the artist in front of it in her little studio.
Here's the overall effect on our newly painted 'accent' wall:
And here's a close-up of a single piece, which is copper and brass mounted on painted wooden boards.
We worked on the general size and layout and colouring of the work, and the sorts of individual pieces we liked, but Sharon then did the rest as she saw fit. And we're delighted with the result!
